Some of Ray’s joyful moments included playing video games with his sons, model airplanes and cars, collecting various random unique toys and talking about History. He was very proud of his daughter who is in the National Guard. In his younger years, Ray was part of the Drum and Bugle Corp in Illinois. Recently; Ben, his brother, sent him an old book with a note in it reminiscing about the time when he and Ray were pulled over by law enforcement because they were slapping each other in the face. Ray laughed so hard at that memory he almost fell of the chair!
Ray never liked being the center of attention, per his wishes there will not be a service and will be a donor for the Gift of Hope. His family thanks everyone for the well wishes and support in their time of sorrow.
